Genre: Christmas Romance Novella
Book Description: The Christmas season has always been important to Nash Sinclair. Home from the war and surrounded by his large, loving family, he realizes what is missing from his life: a wife. Not too surprisingly, he is looking at his sister-in-law’s rather becoming (and unmarried) sister when he makes the decision.
Lady Julianna intends to remain unmarried, having no need for a husband to live the life of her dreams. Rather than explain her unusual choice, she insists only a man who slays dragons would suit her, and since dragons don't exist, neither does her ideal beau.
Not one to turn away from a challenge, Nash enlists the aid of his nieces and nephews in a scheme sure to win Lady Julianna's affection. But as he comes to know the lady better, he realizes he’s risking his own heart. When did his silly idea become a crucial quest?
My thoughts: A quick story to read during the Christmas season.
A near spinster has determined to never marry. A returned Captain from the French war is determined to change her mind. A wager is set, who will win?
This is a cute and clean novella. The characters are engaging. The story is predictable, but fun when you want a light romance.
